Training Room

Poetry as Therapy

Saturday 24th March 2007. 10am - 4pm


Cost £55.00(inc VAT)  – including refreshments

Many of the exercises that writers use in creative writing workshops can also reveal knowledge and emotions that are usually held out of awareness. This workshop will focus on some of those exercises and will appeal to anyone interested in using writing for personal development, or in developing their personal writing into a satisfying creative product.


These guided exercises provide a 'frame' on which to peg emotive or unclear content. They offer a different angle on how we normally perceive our lives and the events and people in them.


No experience of poetry reading or writing is required. The workshop will focus on free-form and prose-poem formats (a prose-poem is an image or event described in poetically). You will need to bring an A4 notebook and pen/pencil. Handouts will be provided.


Janine Pinion is a published poet and artist. Since 2001 she has been a tutor and works in further education as therapeutic support for students with mental ill-health, and privately as a supervisor and counsellor. She also runs occasional writing workshops and regular poetry reading groups and gives readings of her own poetry.


We are holding a taster session on Poetry as Therapy on 05/06/2007. Please click here for details.

A Certificate of Attendance will be given.
